The Dandy Warhols Podcast
This week on NewbsRadio we are talking about Portland’s The Dandy Warhols who came out blazing in the mid-90s with their pseudo-psychedelic sound with a one foot firmly on the gas pedal pushing music toward what we now know as “indie-rock”. Although they are probably best known for their song “Bohemian Like You” and “Solid” which ended up being the theme to Judd Apatow’s “Undeclared” which was a sort of follow up to “Freaks and Geeks“… I am getting ahead of myself here… they are still making music, their newest album came out in 2012 entitled “This Machine” and we believe that their whole catalog should be re-evaluated so if you haven’t heard them, please check out the small selection of videos at the bottom of the post.
Also in this episode we hear from our pal John Oates who tells us about Hall and Oates’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which is just around the corner here. Congrats to John and Daryl for receiving this very RnR distinction!
We are giving away another book from Bloomsbury’s 33 1/3 Series, it’s Phillip Crandall’s book about the making and story behind Andrew WK’s “I Get Wet“. If you want a copy of your very own, simply give us your best partying tip via twitter, or Facebook or just write it in the comments below and we just might ship you a copy. We are podcasters and therefore have no business giving out partying advice, so THEORETICALLY what would be your best advice for us? Congrats to Mike Dillon of Philadelphia PA who won his own copy of 33 1/3’s “I Get Wet” after listening to our Roy Harper Podcast earlier this month.
Other stops this week include the Replacements, the Singles Movie Soundtrack and television’s Mythbusters series.
Now here is a small selection of Dandy Warhols tracks that we can’t get enough of!
See you next time when our focus will be on Andrew WK’s “I Get Wet”, and we still find a way to talk about the Culture Club! Take care!
